Belt travel bags immediately identify you as a tourist even when your clothes don’t. Since some gangs target tourists, wearing a funny bag increases the risk to have to make an involuntary visit to the embassy.

How not to look like a tourist?
You can easily increase your travel safety by means of a so-called clutch wrap purse . These SHOLDIT clutch wrap purses look like a normal infinity scarf, but have an inside pocket with zipper that is large enough to hold your passport, checks, and hotel door key card (see photo below). Furthermore, they put up your outfit a nudge which reads less tourist. Even when you run around in the typical sightseeing outfits in the must-have seen districts of London, New York, Miami, Nice, Cape Town, Singapore, … you name it.
A scarf that does double duty as a clutch and wrap
When it gets too warm for a scarf you quickly can convert it to a clutch by pushing the scarf inside the pocket (see photo below). Just be careful that when you convert it back into a scarf, you first make sure that you take out your valuables, and then put them back in 😉 . The scarf is also wide enough that you can wear it as a shoulder wrap. Doing so may come in handy in the evenings or when visiting air conditioned museums.
An infinity scarf that looks professional
SHOLDIT has a great selection of these scarves. That means even when you have to dress for business travel, you can find the right scarf in the right shades or pattern to look professional. I really like their leopard print scarf too. They cost between $29.99 to $69.99 depending on the material and style.
Best Scarf for Outdoor Concerts
When you love open air concerts, this infinity scarf is a goto. It keeps your money, credit cards, ID and tickets safe and your hands free. You can jump up and down to the music without worrying about bruises from your bag hitting your hips. Well, it’s because you won’t need a bag. This safety solution makes dressing for an outdoor concert much easier.
The scarf enhances fashion with function at an affordable price and is a great gift idea for all people who travel a lot. It is a stylish alternative to the travel belt bags that always make women look like being pregnant. It is also a practical solution for moms who need to have both hands free when supervising kids on the playground. Protect yourself and get a SHOLDIT scarf/purse for your next travel.
